Chef Stewart Scott Has a Winning Recipe for Poker Success

Share this
Autumn is here in all of its colorful glory, and along with it comes the season of major live events on the tournament trail. It may be hard to believe, but fall means it is almost time to start planning for the biggest yearly event to hit the Land Down Under – The Aussie Millions.

Last year the Aussies had reason to celebrate when 37 year old Stewart Scott from Queensland, Australia, made Aussie history when he cooked his competition at the January 2009 Aussie Millions. Not only did Scott emerge with an impressive $1,865,724 for his victory, but he went down in the record book for being the first Australian to take an Aussie Millions crown.

A Gourmet chef who turned professional poker player, Scott started out concocting his winning poker recipe while working in Adelaide. He also dabbled in running a small IT company while he delved deeper into playing poker online. Cooking up the right mix for honing his poker skills online, Scott made his mark in 2006 by winning a satellite series at the SkyCity Casino in his hometown of Adelaide. That accomplishment took him all the way to the WSOP Main Event with an impressive $30,000 prize package.

Well known on the Australian poker circuit for his laid back manner, Scott’s opponents will attest to the fact that his relaxed attitude hides a savvy killer instinct that emerges at the poker table.  When it comes to playing online, his fellow competitors may not realize Scott has been a loyal player on PartyPoker for quite awhile and has earned his key to the PartyPoker VIP club called the Palladium Lounge. But just butt heads with him and you will figure out fast that on the live or virtual felt, Scott is not a player to underestimate.

Being one of the first to realize what a great poker future Scott has, Party Poker has cooked up a deal for Scott to be one of their poker representatives. One of Scott’s new duties as a Party Poker ambassador will be to take part in an Australian publicity tour. With name recognition from his popular land based ‘Stewart Scott Invitational’ events already in place, Scott and PartyPoker hope to draw more positive attention and more players to the great game of poker. Commenting on his new partnership, Scott said,” It’s great to put pen to paper and sign-up to represent PartyPoker - it’s always been my site of choice.” As far as his immediate future plans, he added, “I am looking forward to defending my Aussie Millions title in January and am even more excited that I will be doing this as an ambassador for PartyPoker with a large team of online qualifiers!”

Party Poker has announced that they are gearing up to offer those online satellite qualifiers to the Aussie Millions starting in November. And along with the announcements of upcoming satellite events and having Scott onboard, a Party Poker spokesman said, “We are delighted to have signed up Stewart as a brand ambassador leading up to the 2010 Aussie Millions. As well as being a loyal customer, Stewart is a popular member of the Australian poker community and we look forward to working together.”

Away from the green felt, Scott is a family man, devoting time to his wife and daughter.  A happy home life and a successful poker career seem to have all of the winning ingredients Scott needs.  Recently the former Chef put his recipe for success to the test, at the PokerNews Cup in Melbourne, where he not only represented his favorite poker room, but joined the green felt battle with the 17 players who won their seat to the Main Event in online qualifiers at Party Poker.
